Last week we reported on the reveal of the newest Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat 11. Amongst Mileena and Rambo, Rain officially joined the roster as well. The Prince of Edenia has been a fan favorite since his big debut back in Mortal Kombat 3 Ultimate. That is if you’re old enough to remember back that far. The Mortal Kombat roster has always consisted of several colorful and deadly ninjas. Rain is one of them.
Similar to Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Ermac, Rain’s move set is dependent on the elements. With water and lightning powers at his disposal, the Demigod mixes his combat style with a set of magical attacks that are beneficial on offense and defense. Check out his gameplay debut for Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate below.
It’s so exciting to see Rain fully back in the Mortal Kombat universe with his fluidly pleasing fighting style! The character has always been one of my favorites in the franchise. I’m also interested in seeing what kind of cosmetics the team at NetherRealm will create for him moving forward. The idea behind Rain was inspired by the late great Prince Rogers Nelson.
